I made eight gluten free pumpkin pies over the course of the past two weeks and they turned out great!  My husband took a few to work, we had two for Thanksgiving with his family and two for Thanksgiving with my side of the family, and we kept one for ourselves.  Everyone loved this gluten free pie crust and I hope you do too!

Here is the gluten free pie crust recipe I came up with.  It yields four pie crusts or two double crust pies.

Ingredients

3 cups rice flour + 4 tbsp for rolling

1 cup potato starch

2 sticks of butter (1 cup)

1/2 c. coconut oil

3 tbsp sugar

2 tsp salt

1 egg

3/4 c. cold water

Instructions

  1. Blend 3 c. rice flour with potato starch, sugar, and salt
  2. Cut cold butter and solid coconut oil into flour mixture
  3. Beat egg and mix with cold water
  4. Combine ingredients until dough forms
  5. Pull dough apart into four pieces and place in fridge for 1 hour in container covered with plastic wrap
  6. Use 1 tbsp per pie crust for dusting surface and rolling pin
  7. Roll each pie crust out and gently place in pie pans
  8. Form the edges with your fingers
  9. Fill crust with pumpkin, fruit, or any other pie filling and bake as instructed in your pie recipe

I Hope You Dance

Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email

I love dancing, don’t you?  How about music?  I like music too.  The two go hand in hand of course.  You can’t really have one without the other.  Even if you’re not dancing outwardly when you listen to music, I bet you’re dancing on the inside.  For the past couple days, I’ve been walking around my house with my iPod in my pocket and ear-buds in my ears.  My husband and children have caught me dancing many times.

I’ve found that music motivates me.  It motivates me to clean the house and keep going until the laundry and dishes are all done.  It motivates me to be active.  Dancing isn’t the only thing we do to music.  I often see people out walking or running with their MP3 Player.

Depending on the song, it can motivate me spiritually by lifting up my soul to my Creator God.  A life without music and dance is a life that is unfulfilled.  So, not only do I pray that you’ll be motivated by music… I hope you dance!!!!!!!!
